Marking her first television interview since her public transition, Caitlyn Jenner opened up to Ellen DeGeneres about "absolutely" not missing her life as a man, her views on gay marriage and hopes of finding another life partner.

“Anything new with you?” DeGeneres jokingly asked Jenner as she opened up their talk, which will air Tuesday as part of the talk-show host’s season premiere.

“No, nothing with me,” Jenner quipped.

Next week, Jenner also speaks to TODAY's Matt Lauer in a two-part interview airing Thursday and Friday.

On "Ellen," the reality-show star and former Olympian described feeling "fabulous" and when asked if she missed her old self, Bruce, she responded: "Absolutely no."

“Because as a woman I can do all the fun stuff anyway. I can play golf, I can still go race cars," she said.

DeGeneres asked Jenner about the evolution of her views on same-sex marriage, something Jenner admitted that she did not support about 15 years ago.

"At first, I was not for it. I thought, I’m a traditionalist,” she said. “I kind of like tradition and it's always been a man and a woman. And I’m thinking, I don’t quite get it."

But Jenner, who describes herself as a conservative Republican, said her beliefs gradually shifted.

"As time has gone on, I think, like a lot of people on this issue, have really changed your thinking here to, ‘I don’t ever want to stand in front of anybody’s happiness.’ That’s not my job, okay? If that word 'marriage' is really, really that important to you, I can go with it.”

Jenner also said she's open to dating but admitted she is "at such a different place in life" where that's not as important. She's already raised a family and "I’ve already had too many children," she joked.

“I’ve kind of passed that stage in my life, but yes, would I like to find a partner in life to share my life with? Yeah, I’m sure I will at some point,” she said. “Right now I’m just very busy doing a lot of things and kind of just getting used to where I’m at and who I’m at. As time goes on I’ll deal with that subject.”
